The Lucerne is a fairly priced elegant hotel in a great Upper west side location. The bed linens and furniture are exquisite. Flat screen tv, free wi-fi, Aveda bath products, great water pressure in the shower, very friendly staff.

We took a family trip to visit the museum of natural history. This hotel was in walking distance of the museum, which was great. It was a clean hotel and the staff was friendly. I can't say there was anything spectacular about the hotel, it was a place to sleep.

Lovely hotel. If I had been in the city for pleasure rather than business, the Lucerne would make an ideal base of operations for my wife and me. I stayed on a Monday night and got a complimentary upgrade to a posh suite. Room was beautiful and spacious, with a great workspace. Very comfortable bed, great sleep in a quiet... More

Very nice hotel. Have stayed here twice. Parking garage right across the street. Aveda products nice touch! Nice sized rooms. Street noise a little loud from the second floor, but kept the air fan on all the time and it drowned the noise out. Great access to the 1 line. Easy access to the hotel coming in from the Lincoln...

Loved this hotel. Beautiful accommodations, great room, and excellent location near many great restaurants, museums, and central park. I really feel like we lucked out finding this hotel, and will certainly be back in the future! Do note that the suites (or at least the one we stayed in), do not have a pull out couch. This was absolutely no... More

We had a great stay at the Lucerne Hotel. The hotel is in a great location and easy to walk to Central Park, Riverside Park, Times Square, and other attractions. We arrived several hours before check-in and the hotel staff upgraded our room so that we could check-in early. The room was huge and very comfortable. The hotel is clearly... More

This boutique hotel is on the upper west side of Manhattan. The location is ideal. Near subways, museums and restaurants. The hotel is lovely. Our room was very nice with a king size bed, big bathroom and a walk in closet. Very quiet rooms. Newspapers every morning and wine in the afternoon. And free WI fi, which is not the... More

This is our first time staying here. The price was competitive and we loved the location. I chose to book based on all the great trip advisor reviews. I have to agree with many other visitors that The Lucerne is very clean and comfortable. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

Very nice. The room was clean, and it came with Aveda amenities and a comfy bed. It is in walking distance to Zabars and the French roast, which is good considering the food pickings are slim. Overall, nice hotel, but if you are lookin gfor intensly fancy hotels s, this is not the place to go.

We stayed in the Lucerne for 10 days, it's location was very convenient for us because the subway was about 1minute walking. Room was excellent, the room was very suitable for my family (me, my wife, and two kids). Wifi was free. We didn't try the spa and the restaurant. I recommend this hotel if anyone wants to stay in...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
